Peoples Home Equity, a regional mortgage lender, announced recognition received by loan officers in their Chattanooga office. 

JoAnna Otero and Bruce Dodd were praised by the Chattanooga Mortgage Bankers Association as top producers in 2017.  For performance in mortgage banking and real estate finance, both Ms. Otero and Mr. Dodd were given Diamond awards, the highest level designation available.   

Additional accolades for Ms. Otero came from Ask a Lender, a new online platform that connects borrowers and lenders. Ms. Otero earned a spot in their top 20 list of Tennessee Best Mortgage Lenders 2018, as one of only five awards in the Chattanooga market. 

“When the buyers are happy, we’re happy,” said Mr. Dodd, southeastern director of sales for People’s Home Equity, with more than 25 years of experience. “It’s an honor for members of the team to be lauded by colleagues in the industry.”

“These types of acknowledgements represent a lot of hard work by everyone on my team and the entire company," said Ms. Otero. "At the end of the day our clients are our top priority and I love what I do, but to be acknowledged in this way is such an honor and means so much to me.” 

Peoples Home Equity has offices locally in Chattanooga, Cleveland, and Dalton and serve the Southeast Tennessee and North Georgia area.
